Contracts help define the relationships between buyers, sellers, collaborators, partners, competitors, governments and regulators. Our use of economics provides insights for understanding when they will and won’t work.
Our corporate finance work
How do you decide on the optimal strategies for allocating scarce capital to extract maximum value for investors? What is the value of an asset, alternative contracting arrangements or a stock option?
Businesses have to make critical commercial decisions and investments under uncertainty about the future. We combine insights from financial economics and sophisticated analytical techniques to help executives and company boards make sound decisions in the face of such uncertainty.
And it’s not just companies who use our advice. Our team has worked a range of valuation issues with law firms, government agencies and regulators. We’ve provided cost of capital advice to a large number of regulated entities, industry associations, government and regulatory agencies. This work is underpinned by our analytical and statistical skills, and we present results in an accessible way.
